Apex Packs - How to Get Free Apex Packs, All Apex Pack Drop Odds

Here's how to earn Apex Packs within Apex Legends, as well as a list of Apex Coin prices for the microtransaction currency.

Apex Legends might be free to play, but there isn't any way you can earn cosmetic items for any of the characters outside of Apex Packs. In this Apex Packs guide, we'll be compiling all the information you need to know about the pack system, including details on the Apex Pack drop odds, and detailing how to get free Apex Packs in Respawn's game.

Apex Legends Packs Explained

Firstly, what are Apex Packs? They function as the 'loot boxes' of Apex Legends, offering you rewards that you've otherwise have to grind out the game in order to earn. You'll earn three randomized items per Apex Pack, and these can be anything from weapon or character skins, to character voice lines, or crafting metals, that you can save up to unlock a specific weapon or character skin.

How to Earn Apex Packs in Apex Legends

But how do you earn Apex Packs in Apex Legends? You’ll earn an Apex Legends pack for the majority of new player levels you attain, and you level up in Apex Legends through earning XP. According to the official EA website for Apex Legends, you can earn a grand total of 45 Apex Packs over the course of player levels 1-100.

However, since Season 1 of Apex Legends has now launched, there's a brand new way for you to obtain Apex Packs by playing the game. If you purchase the Season 1 Battle Pass, which retails for 950 Apex Coins ($10), you'll access 100 total Battle Pass reward tiers. Sometimes, when you increase your Battle Pass reward tier, you'll be rewarded with an Apex Pack. For a full walkthrough of every reward you'll earn with the new pass, check out our Apex Legends Battle Pass guide.

Apex Pack Drop Rates

Also found on the EA website for Apex Legends is the drop rate for the Apex Packs. The drop rates for Apex Packs are:

  • Rare or better item: 100 percent.
  • Epic or better item: 24.8 percent.
  • Legendary item: 7.4 percent.
